The final score: review Good
The 411
Overall, I found the NWA Crockett Cup 2019 event a good and fun show, The production was good, commentary was great, and the old school ring mat and graphics really made you feel like you were watching a Charlotte Coliseum show in the 80s. I didn’t think that there was anything great in the ring, but there was also nothing bad, although the booking of Isaacs & Lattimer was easily the worst thing on the show, as they weren’t any good. We got new champions, a well paced event and closed with a very good main event match. Thumbs up.
